Seeing as Kansas City is back in the Super Bowl, it'd be fitting to serve up some authentic KC-style BBQ. Goldbelly allows you to order sauce-soaked eats from some of the most iconic BBQ joints in Missouri, and many will still arrive before this weekend. We're especially digging the KC Sunday Dinner package from Jack Stack BBQ, which serves four to six people with baby back ribs, pork burnt ends, beef burnt ends, hickory pit beans, cheesy potato bake, Jack Stack barbecue sauce and a triple chocolate brownie.
Or just go whole-hog and lay out a pile of succulent pulled pork for sandwiches, nachos or just to eat with a fork. You can snag enough pulled pork from Caroline's in South Carolina to feed eight people for $89 and have it delivered by Friday.
